From the HCC sports desk:
BEL AIR, Md.—Fifty-one student-athletes have been named to the Fall 2009 Director of Athletics Honor Roll squad, Director of Athletics Ken Krsolovic and Academic Services Coordinator Greg Witkop announced recently.
In the first year of its inception during the 2008-09 academic year, 67 student-athletes were named to the honor roll, which was a combination of both the fall and spring academic semesters. The 2009-10 academic year will see separate honor roll lists for both the fall and spring semesters, giving student-athletes the ability to garner honors for both semesters, regardless of where their sport seasons fall.
In order to qualify, student-athletes must maintain a 3.0 grade point average and pass 12 academic credits in order to be named to that semester’s honor roll.
The men’s teams at Harford just barely edged out the women’s teams with 26 athletes named to the honor roll for the Fall 2009 semester, while the women’s teams had 25 athletes make the list. The men’s lacrosse team led all groups with nine selections to the honor roll, while men’s soccer (7) and women’s tennis (7) round out the top three teams overall.
The baseball team completes the top three men’s teams with four selections, while the women’s soccer and softball teams had six recipients to round out the top three women’s teams at Harford.
